Five top food shows on Netflix in 2020

Deliveroo and Uber Eats do not deliver to my area, and I do not live in a remote place, I’m not bitter…much!

I’ve found some cracking series that will give you all the food thrills and spills with a little travel along the way too.

Here’s my top five food shows on Netflix…

Lunch at The Hut Behind the Hedge

Lunch at The Hut Behind the Hedge

Rock has some great places to eat and The Hut Behind The Hedge is no exception – a great little lunch or snack stop!

In fact, the term ‘hidden gem’ is over used but this is one and not well known out of local circles. If you’re headed to Rock, support local and make sure you order a slice of cake.

Take a look at the bright blue cabin which is definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area…

The Shore Restaurant, Penzance

The Shore Restaurant, Penzance

The Shore in Penzance is totally out of this world. Bruce Rennie is producing absolutely incredible food and I swear he’s well on his way to a Michelin Star.

He mans his kitchen every night alone, yes, you heard right he makes dishes for an entire restaurant of people alone! And, those dishes change depending on the local ingredients available locally every day.

He creates culinary masterpieces from the local catches and produce he sources from earlier in the day and has just a few hours to put a new menu together.

It’s unique, creative and some of the best food I’ve ever eaten – there’s a handful of meals that I will never forget and this is on it.

If you’re headed to Cornwall book a table at The Shore for an epic food experience…

ᵃᵈ Portsmouth’s warehouse street food venue has been a total hit since it opened last year. It’s a favourite of mine because of its chilled dining vibes, fantastic food and great entertainment.

17You change your mind, like a girl changes clothes…

For the ever indecisive of us, and yes I class myself within this group, bottomless tacos, where you can pick any of and as many of the tacos as you like, is the DREAM!

And, that’s where Bonita’s Southsea steps in with it’s Taco Tuesday offer – it corners the market and conquers it. Actually it stamps all over the competition unapologetically while telling you you’re pretty and feeding you tacos.

Dinner at Bristol’s Honest Burger

Dinner at Bristol’s Honest Burger

A little of what you fancy does you good, and sometimes only a burger will itch that particular food scratch.

I’ve heard so much hype about Honest Burgers and I wanted to try it for so long that when I saw one on a trip to Bristol I knew that would be my spot for dinner. I wanted to try it to see what the fuss was about.

The Bristol branch is on Clare Street, just off Corn Street which is fairly central in the city.

This was my first time at Honest Burgers, take a look at my experience and what I thought, it’s a bit of a mixed bag…
